“Pokétouch” Trademark Filed In Japan

By Ishaan . January 15, 2014 . 11:00am

Nintendo, Game Freak and Creatures Inc. have filed a new Pokémon-related trademark in Japan. It’s called “Pokétouch”. Obviously, we have no idea what it’s for. The first thing that comes to mind is the Pokémon Amie feature from Pokémon X and Y.


It looks like there’s quite a bit of Pokémon-related stuff in development. We already know about the Pikachu detective game, and then there’s Pokkén Fighters. Perhaps Pokétouch is another such spin-off… or perhaps it’s just another smartphone marketing app like Pokémon Say Tap.

    • deadMastershiro

      You saw that video on crunchyroll didn’t you.

  • TomSkylark

    It would be awesome if they made a 3DS App that was something like the Pokewalker for HG/SS. I loved the hell out of that thing, and since the 3DS is already counting my steps for Play Coins anyway, I figure they might as well be put them to Pokemon-raising use too.

    • deadMastershiro

      One of the best ideas i’ve heard all day.

  • ZnTxn

    I wouldn’t mind a full game based on Pokemon Amie.

      • Kai2591

        • Warboss Aohd

          that ain’t no humie.

          • Rytan

            She’s just not popular enough to be a regular human.

          • Warboss Aohd

            …….you make it sound like being a non humie is a bad thing, when in fact it’s the opposite.

  • Arcana Drill

    Maybe it’s a more refined game based on poke amie?


    Time to leave.

    Sounds like a refined and updated version of Amie.
